As we age, the collagen and elastin in our skin decreases. This causes skin sagging and loss of skin elasticity. Radio Frequency (RF) skin tightening has been an excellent treatment for these common skin aging problems.
Dr. Chernoff selects systems that provide safe and effective results for our patients. The Radio Frequency system we use at our Santa Rosa office is called IntraGen™.
IntraGen is a new non-invasive, monopolar radio frequency contouring device that safely and gently rejuvenates and tightens skin. IntraGen works by targeting collagen contraction and stimulating new collagen formation by applying Grid Fractional Radio Frequency energy. Dr. Greg Chernoff advise that IntraGen treatment is safe for all skin types.
IntraGen is one of several treatment options at our office to help increase collagen, strengthen elastin fibers, and tighten skin. Additionally, we offer several other treatment options that range from non-invasive to minimally invasive including Microneedle RF, DOT Fractionated CO2 Laser, FaceTite, and BodyTite.
During your consultation, we will evaluate your skin, listen to your goals, explain all options, and recommend a treatment plan.
Prior to any treatment or procedure, Dr. Chernoff or one of our trained and certified Health Care Providers determine if you are a candidate, review the risk and benefits, and provide all possible treatment alternatives.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH SKIN TIGHTENING RF?
Our patients have also experienced improvement in targeted areas of their abdomen, thighs, and knees. We may suggest combining Skin Tightening RF with other treatments such as Fractionated CO2 or Microneedle RF to provide additional improvement in skin tightening.
